1. An Indian Citizen
2. A Non-Resident Indian
3. A Person of Indian Origin
4. Foreigners
Choose the correct option from the codes given below:

Answer: [B] Only 1 & 2

The information under the RTI can be sought by an Indian Citizen only. NRI are also Indian Citizens so they can seek information. PIO does not confirm citizenship so we need to eliminate third choice.
The Right to Information Act, 2005 empowers the citizens, promotes transparency and accountability in the working of the Government, combat corruption, and make the democracy work for people in real sense.
